Richard Layard wins Distinguished Researcher award
Professor Lord Richard Layard has been given the 2020 Distinguished Quality-of-Life Researcher Award for his substantial contribution to wellbeing research.
The award was given to Professor Layard by the International Society for Quality-of-Life Studies (ISQOLS) in an online ceremony.
Accepting the award, Professor Layard said that he felt huge progress had been made towards embedding wellbeing as a public policy priority. He added that Covid-19 pandemic had made people think about what really matters.
The video recording of the whole event is available here.
Professor Layard is one of the first economists to have worked on wellbeing. His 2005 book Happiness: Lessons from a new science, which was translated into 20 languages, kick-started the debate on the importance of prioritising wellbeing as a way of measuring how well a country was doing - rather than simply looking at GDP.
His work since then has included helping to establish the NHS service Improving Access to Psychological Therapies, co-founding the movement Action for Happiness and co-editing the World Happiness Report.
His most recent book Can We Be Happier? Evidence and Ethics was published in January 2020.
ISQOL, based in Arizona, USA, is a professional organisation which promotes and encourages research in the field of quality-of-life, happiness and wellbeing studies.
